I suffered from depression for many years because of the fact that this world never offered the pure love that I knew existed out there somewhere. After several suicide attempts and being dependent on an anti-depressant for over a year, some believers told me that God is the author of life, that people reject God and try to write their own story. Jesus is the hero who pays the penalty we deserve for wrecking our life and other lives, but we have to give Jesus the pen and allow Him to write us into His story.
I gave my life to Jesus. Then, I was guided in truth and love by other believers at the church those guys attended. After walking with Jesus for a few weeks, I was very persuaded that this was the start of a brand new life for me. After attending church and walking with Jesus for a couple of months, I was convinced that I had made the right decision.
Now, I love God unconditionally, and He gives me the ability to love people unconditionally. My life is changed so that I can see in black and white. I have found my home. I know what means the most to me, and I have an amazing sense of joy because of the love that flows through me. Without hesitation, I would sacrifice my life on earth for Jesus because He has done this for me, and my life is only worth the worth that He has written into it, which happens to be an amazing amount.
